Do You Burn Dollars?
• Do you fire your feed cooker like a traction engine? This is not necessary with a “MARATHON ” Portable Pan Cooker Will You Get Part Of The $500,000 The New Packing Plant Will Spend For Hogs? Here’s how: Don’t cram your hogs full of feed they can’t turn into meat. That’s wasting feed. Cook the feed and the hogs will fatten on half the amount. Cook ing doubles the bulk and doubles the food value. The hogs put on that extra weight which puts the extra dollars in your pocket. Throw away your old iron kettle with the big open fire, and the smoke blowing in your eyes. The “Marathon” is built like a stove. Set it up in doors or out. Scientifically constructed. Takes little fuel and attention. Fire door is extra large, fire box runs entire length of boiler. Long wood can be used, you don’t have to chop it up into little sticks. Full length of boiler is exposed to fire, which means quick boiling and even heat with little fuel. Investigate the “Marathon” Portable Pan Cooker. Write or call at WAUSAU FOUNDRY & MACHINE CO.

Albers Guarantees to Return the Money if Mi-o-na Does not Relieve You. "It’s a pleasure to sell a medicine when my customers come in after ward and tell me how much good it has done them,” said W. W. Albers, the popular druggist to a Wausau man, “and that is why I like to sell and recommend Mi-o-na, tiie dyspepsia remedy. 1 have so much faith in this article that I am going to guarantee it, in tiie future, and will return the money to any purchaser of Mi-o-na whom it does not help. That may seem rash but our customers have said so many good words in its favor that I do not expect to have many packages returned. "Anyone who has dyspepein, whose food does not digest well, and who has to take thought as to what he can eat, and when, can leave 50 cents deposit at our store and take home a box of Mi-o-na and if the remedy does not regulate his digestion and help his dyspepsia he can withdraw his money.” This shows great faith in the merit of Mi-o-na. It is really a most unsu al medicine and the rapid increase of sales since W. W. Albers, introduced it in Wausau shows that it does all that it is claimed to do—relieves dyspepsia, regulates digestion and enables those who use it to eat just what they want with no fear of trouble after. , Y.

The echo of Christmas bells and New Year greetings still ring in our ears and we know many hearts have responded to the reminder of "‘good will,” while "peace on earth” has be come a pra>er of portentious meaning. Not everybody this year busied themselves in gift-buying, some there was wondering if earth was really tilled with good-fellowship, some there was suffering from limitations of means that seemed to have readied the border-line of need. Many of these were remembered for example, the Chicago Athletic Club “good fellows” sent out one thousand baskets to the poor, each containing fifteen dollar’s worth of food which is but one incident of the holiday. The young people of the church social clubs pledged from two to four thousand loaves of bread for the needy. These have helped to gladden days that have for many years seemed those of giving and taking, ’till not to give becomes a source of pain. THE LOOP. Lectures, concerts, recitals and opera lured people from the stores yet leaving "the Loop” crowded with people. Chicago folk are notably good-natured when crowding in and out of the limited spaces of the shop ping district; but, the anxious expres sion, the stern determination of a bargain hunter settles upon the faces of young and old and robs them of the beauty which rightfully belongs to them, but we know it disappears when homeward bound. “What do you think,” cried a busy kindergarten teacher, “1 wanted some toy cows, some real looking ones to teach my children natural science, and they called tiie manager, because I com plained that cows without a milk pouch were incorrect. He assured me Germany had always made them that way, (of course all toys come from Germany,) and that after this little trouble is settled lie could order some made for me.” Of course we assured her that Germany was modest if belligerent. Her arms have for weeks been filled with toys and she has climbed a ten foot ladder hundreds of times to fit out the electrically lighted tree with dolls and wonderful decorations to go with a Christmas tree. No mother has greater cares, more enthusiasm and endless plans to en tertain her children than this bright, girlish bachelor-maid, who confesses to twenty years or more in kindergar ten work, and in confidence, she de clares herself quite devoid of an affectionate nature. We can alford to smile at that as we murmur, "Love begets love.” We wandered into the French M. E. church a stormy Sunday afternoon, and listened to a sermon in French by an able, nay a brilliant man, who having made a fortune, has felt it a higher duty to speak twice each Sunday to a flock of his Americanized bretheren. How glad we were that the last year’s effort to get anew floor and cushioned seats had been accomplished. "Where two or three are gathered together in My name” seemed very real, al though only nineteen people were present and we felt the home-like interest of its members, and realized that the larger congregation attend ing in the morning had labored all week for the Bazaar. What a treat to sing hymns where sound was un obstructed by carpets and where a hard wood floor served as a sounding board ! Worldly? Ah but music is also a religion ! THROUGH A STORM. The Saturday following, we looked forth at the snow which was buffeted by a strong wind. Should we venture to attend a lecture? Experience had taught us it meant one hour ahead of the service, else we could not gain an entrance, much less a seat. Must we stand in that storm for an hour? Remembering that the reading room would be open, on went wraps, rub bers and close-fitting hat. Did any one stay away ? Not noticeably. People were allowed to enter at once and the twelve hundred seats were soon filled: those who came later re turned home, Aiser as to Science lectures. The speaker, Frank Bell, closed his choice lecture by asking if he might give a little advice to those who were presumably interested in science and who were seeking inform ation. The suggestion was unusual and interesting. “If you are thinking of taking up Christian Science, do not stay out till you become good enough 1 If you reached that point and then sought to join, the chances are, you would be advised to wait awhile.” "Do not think it is something diffi cult to understand. It is the simplest thing in the world.” "When you seek help he careful from whom you seek it Not all those calling themselves Scientists are prepared to instruct others ” "There is a mistaken idea abroad,” he said, "that Scientists are at enmity with doctors. Tiiisis not true. Physicians do great good in alleviating suffering and carrying comfort to stricken ones. They are needed and reach hundreds of people who could he reached in no other way. Our paths lie in opposite directions, how then can we clash?” INCIDENTS OF THE STREET The next day as we came out of church just before services closed we overtook a lady leading a diminutive valuable dog, which had evidently been injured. The writer never hesi tates to address children or dogs knowing love is surely reflected by love. A passing remark to the dog received a cordial answer from its owner. To our surprise she added, "We’ve been to church! Of course, Fido and 1 satin the lobby hut we could hear!” "Shocking? Notatall. She under stands that all created things came from source and that ‘Not a Sparrow Falleth.’ ” In contrast as to the line of thought the Sunday before we overtook a stranger leading a child. ‘I don’t see why 1 couldn’t stay,’ complained the child. ‘Well, if your mother cannot be admitted to Sunday School with you, it’s no place for you. I’ve my opinion of that kind of religion.” The writer patted tiie baby head as she sighed: "We would all like to be under twenty and be taught as little children, but we must do our own work, and strive as well as de sire.’ ” She was still giving vent to her in jured feelings, and super-sensitiveness, as we boarded the car with a silent consciousness that error soon destroys itself and gives place to Truth. f A READING. Such a treat was enjoyed by a select audience, teachers and students three weeks ago when Mrs. A. D. Baker of New York gave a series of readings from Maeterlink and ended with "Tiie Unseen Empire” by Fuller, an Amer ican poet, which seemed marvellously prophetic in the pace of the tragedies being enacted upon tiie very spot chosen by the author as his theatre of action, although tiie play was pub lished a year before the war broke out. Mrs. Baker is considered one of the foremost readers in the U. S. and is a German by parentage if not by hirtli hut a most loyal American. It needed just such a person to pre sent tiie work, and clearly define the author’s position as regards his princi pal characters, which now seem to point to personalities and to bring out the psychological truth underly ing the play. It seemed to us that no better peace lecture could have been given and the audience listened breathlessly to the entire play. New Year resolutions? 1 have framed those sent by the Pilot. Have you resolved to keep the com mandments? Begin with the first and realize that in obeying it none of the other nine can be broken. I never could remember them in their order! Rambler. A Giant Sun. Canopus, the giant of the stellar system, is, according to a recent cal culation of W. F. A. Ellison, 49,000 times as bright as the sun. It is 134 times as large as the sun in diameter, 18,000 times in surface and 2,420,000 times in volume. Its distance from us, according to the same estimate, is 489 light years. Suppose, says Mr. Ellison, that instead of being at this enormous distance it were placed in the center of the solar system in lieu of the sun. Jt would then occupy eighty-five hundredths of the space ly ing within the orbit of Venus and, as seen from the earth, would subtend an angle of about seventy degrees of arc. Thus, when its lower limb was on our horizon, its upper would be within twenty degrees of the zenith. Need less to say no life could exist on earth with such a neighbor. Scientific American. The Fame of Lens. • Lens leaped into fame in the seven teenth century. During the Thirty Years’ war between France and Spain Louis 11. of Bourbon, known as the Great Conde, achieved one of his most notable victories when, on Aug. 20, 1648, he defeated the Archduke Leopold. On that occasion the cele brated Spanish infantry was complete ly beaten. Conde was at that time commander in chief of the French forces, and Turenne was his subordi nate. The battle began with a panic in Conde's own regiment, but was re trieved by his own coolness and brav ery. In after years he fought for the Spanish against his own country, where, however, he ended his days in peace, enjoying the society of Moliere and other great Frenchmen of letters. —London Tatler. Perplexing Plurals. Little Elsie had Ju3t reached the grade in school where the study of grammar is a part of the day’s work. Among other things she was greatly interested in the singular and plural form of words. She knitted her little brow and looked puzzled when she asked her mother: “Is the plural of bird burden?" “Why, dear, how could you think that?" the mother answered. “Well," explained the child, “father said Willie Blank was a bird, and I heard you say that he and his brothers and sisters were such a burden to their mother.’’—Exchange.
